Nothing says southern comfort food like homemade chicken pot pie! I love this recipe and it’s even better with homemade crust!!
Chicken Pot Pie
1 cup peeled and diced tomatoes, 3/4 cup sliced carrots, 1/2 cup butter, 2/3 cup onions, diced, 1 1/4 teaspoons salt, 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper, 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme, 1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning, 1/2 cup flour, 1 1/2 cups chicken broth, 1 cup milk, 3 cups shredded chicken, 1 cup peas, 2 pie crusts, 1 egg white beaten together with 1 tablespoon water
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Place potatoes and carrots in small saucepan, cover with water and bring to boil 5-8 minutes to soften and then drain. Melt 1/2 cup butter in large saucepan. Add onion and saute 2-3 minutes. Add salt, pepper, thyme, poultry seasoning and sprinkle flour on top and cook for 1 minute, stirring to evenly cook flour. Gradually whisk in chicken broth and then milk. Add potatoes and carrots and let simmer for a few minutes to thicken. Stir in chicken and peas. Turn heat off.
Fit pie crust into bottom of a deep-dish pie plate. Pour filling into pie shell. Place second pie crust on top and trim excess. Brush egg white on top of the pot pie and use a knife to cut 4 slits to let steam escape.
Place on a baking sheet and place in oven and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
(Note: I use one baked deli chicken, helps with the sake of time. Debone chicken and use for the 3 cups shredded chicken)
Happy Father’s Day to all you Father’s!!
